Principles, applications and problems. In addition, we elected to deliver ATRA fully on an outpatient basis, thus diminishing hospitalization costs. High frequency of acute promyelocytic leukemia among latinos with acute myeloid leukemia Letter.

Oral prednisone is used prophylactically, ATRA is given on an outpatient basis and adriamycin is used instead of other anthracyclines. J Am Stat Assoc ; leuceia ATRA was given until reaching a complete hematological remission, as defined by usual criteria.


A single institution experience. Three patients received an autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation 4, 6, 9,19 after achieving the molecular remission, in two instances during the first CR and in one, during the second CR vide supra.

Promyelocytic leukemia in Mexican mestizos. Results from several randomized studies have evaluated various regimens of ATRA alone or in combination with CT to determine optimal induction therapy in patients with newly diagnosed APL.
